If you’re already looking forward to the upcoming iPhone 12, you’ll have to wait even longer. According to Apple, the new phone models will be available in stores later than usual, says the Pocket Lint online magazine.

- Last year we started selling new iPhones in September. This year, we expect the products to be available a few weeks later, said Luca Maestri, the company’s CFO, after the company’s interim report.

However, the maestri did not explain why the production of the new iPhone models is several weeks late.

Apparently, the reason is a corona pandemic that has delayed the schedules of several component manufacturers, among others. There have been rumors of a delay for a long time.

However, Apple may potentially unveil its new phone models, most likely at least the iPhone 12, at a separate event at the end of September.
